I don't get the rules of this thread.  Are we not allowed to say it's crappy, or do we have to explain why it's crap before saying so?
Or were you just saying 'don't come in to bash it until you've actually listened to it?'.

Good luck keeping out the riff raff, though!

I loved that live performance you posted. Good to see Bono doesn't sound like he did at the Obama gig. xD

They just uploaded their whole album on MySpace
http://www.myspace.com/u2

...and it's surprisingly good. It seems like so far the worst song is 'Get Your Boots On', they should have left it as a B-Side.
Why would they pick that one as a single is beyond me.
Way much better than the mellow Coldplayish lame songs on 'How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb'.

Funny you should mention Coldplay... is it just me, or did their last big hit sound like it was recorded using Microsoft Songsmith??

This one is their best since Achtung Baby! I´ve given it maybe 10 listenings now and it keeps growing on me.

I was just thinking that is sounded like Achtung Baby.  Track 02 stood out right away.  Magnificent.

Sounds great, very Lanoisy.

How can you say that?
The further to the end, the better the album gets!

Indeed the best album since Achtung Baby for sure!
Does not beat that one, Joshua, Rattle and Unforgettable Fire, but I think it would end up in the all time top 5 of best U2 albums. Quite a surprise!

Personally I think 'The Joshua Tree' is excessively overrated.
All U2 did was having 3 massive hit singles, and the rest of the album are experimentations with blues and U2 songs that sound rather bland compared to their previous work.

Why did it create so much hype is beyond me.

I've got it... 
It's good overall.
Though some songs outshine more than others.

never agreed with you more :-]
once you get past the 3rd song the album just ebbs out,it hasnt lasted the sands of time either,had a listen to it the other day and the album sounds very dated now [even the hits].



am i the only one who thinks that Zooropa was their best album and Numb their best song? that was when they were at their creative best as far as im concerned...

Numb isn't so bad, but the video is just about intolerable...

Let me put it this way... Creativity, innovation, and originality doesn't always equals greatness.

While U2 was able to successfully re-invent their sound on 'Achtung Baby', I feel like they went a bit too far with 'Zooropa' as far experimentation goes. The record just lacked soul and emotion, and those falsettos by Bono are incredibly annoying to listen to. Bono, has quite a good voice, but seriously he sounds horrible hitting high notes. I personally dread this period of U2 when Bono was way too much into theatrics, and his Mecphisto alter-ego. It was just obnoxious.

I, too, don't get the fuss about The Joshua Tree. I prefer Boy, Achtung Baby and ATYCLB. And I think the new album is their best one since Achtung Baby.

Haha!
I saw them live ontop of the BBC studio's building, if that counts.
Though I'll see them live this year, when they decide to announce tour dates for the UK...
